Kansas State, Tennessee lead foremost shakeup of the vigour 36 faculty basketball rankings - NCAA.com

My NCAA tournament March madness bracket got here out earlier than Houston's loss at domestic to Temple. That might not have knocked the Cougars off the No. 1 line, however definitely intended they're down deeper within the accurate 10. That's two home losses for the Cougars this season.

Purdue may still be the suitable team in the country, jostling with Alabama for the good spot in any rankings/polls. Kansas' staggering domestic loss to TCU combined with a street loss at Kansas State knocked them off their perch. 

Gonzaga had to drop out of the appropriate 10 after dropping to Loyola Marymount. The Lions, my March insanity countrywide team of the Week, snapped Gonzaga's seventy five-game win streak. LMU is having a resurgence under Stan Johnson. The Lions gained 68-sixty seven at the back of Cam Shelton's 27 facets. The Lions are 14-7 standard and four-three within the WCC. but the win is application-changing for LMU and offers hope to every different group now not named Saint Mary's that they could beat the Zags. 

BRACKETOLOGY: Predicting the March insanity guys's bracket 50 days earlier than choice Sunday

The highest newcomer within the power 36 is Indiana, checking in at 14 behind March madness country wide participant of the Week, Trayce Jackson-Davis. TJD put himself back on the scene as a first-team all-American candidate and possible participant of the 12 months with two stellar performances. TJD scored 35 points in 35 minutes in a 15-aspect win at Illinois. Then, on Sunday, TJD poured in 31 and 15 in a house win over Michigan State. these two results helped catapult the Hoosiers returned into the conversation of a probable 2nd-place finisher in the huge Ten (sorry, don't see any crew catching Purdue simply yet).
